Data journalism project


I’m currently working on a data journalism project that tracks what states have breed-specific legislation regarding pit bulls. As a pit bull lover, I find it astounding that there is so much breed specific legislation (BSL) out there and that new laws are being proposed all the time. One of the most shy and compliant dogs I have ever met is a pit bull.

Anyway, this map is only preliminary to create a visual overview. It contains a list of cities within the United States that currently have BSL related to pitbulls. I obtained the information for my Excel spreadsheet from dogsbite.org, which lists legislation by each state. I have not yet verified these ordinances nor confirmed whether these ordinances are still on the books nor whether the information is up to date (new BSL is often proposed).
